Lamu Marine Conservation Trust
Protection of marine life, Turtles
The Lamu Marine Conservation Trust (LAMCOT) was set up in 1992 as a response to the unsustainable harvesting of turtles and their eggs in the Lamu archipelago of northern Kenya. It has maintained a focus on turtles whilst expanding its links with the local community to work for both conservation and local development.
